World Series Finale

Vegas this year went by in the blink of an eye. It’s a trip that we look forward to every year and it always comes and goes in a flash. We didn’t get to do too much shopping this year because Tait was entered in every roping he could.

The world series finale is so much fun to watch, but takes all day to get through all the rounds. Tait and Ky rope great together and were hoping to win big like they did last year. They were 4th high call coming into the short round (meaning they were the 4th fastest time on 3 steers with one steer to go). The short round is a pretty big deal. There is over $1 million in payouts among the winners. They had all the contestants come in for a grand entry. Tait of course was the cutest, he made sure to give his horse Chuck some pets in the grand entry. The short round started at 50th high call. Talk about some nerves in anticipation. I was a wreck in the bleachers waiting for him to rope. All they had to do is catch and they would have won around $100 grand. When their turn came we all got really quiet and watched closer than ever before. However, luck wasn’t in their favor and they came up empty handed. When it gets to that point it is really the luck of  the draw and they simply didn’t draw a good steer.

Although the roping didn’t pan out how we wanted we still came home with a little earnings, memories that will last a life time, and an appreciation for the world of team roping and rodeo.

Here are some photos from the week….
